Yeah every once in a while, usually when I have nothing in my download queue (VERY rare), I'll see a Kaiser torrent pop up and I'll grab it. I've also streamed one or two things from here in the last year or so.

It's often a refreshing change from the usual stuff I listen to, and often surprisingly really good. There's one on here, forget the date, but it's just all long jams, I need to dig it up. I would encourage anyone to try some of his stuff out if you're looking for something just a little bit different from the norm.

The last Kaiser thing I downloaded was this. The 23 minute "Other One" track has some nice jams.

Thanks yet again to T.C. for confirmation of the date, the line-up and
part of the setlist - less first two songs, on his website at You
can find a higher generation recording of the same show on (the date's wrong -,
missing the first song but not missing all the space between the songs this copy is
missing. Whoever I got the first generation recording from evidently cut out as much
of the between-song banter and space as they could...probably to fit as much as
possible on to a 90 minute cassette. The last part of I'm So Glad is spliced in
from the version.
